The Credit Services Association (CSA)
CSA Members and customers warned of fraudulent activity
CSA Members and customers are being advised to be vigilant regarding potential scammers posing as legitimate financial firms.
The Association has been made aware that a firm in South Africa is acting under the name of a genuine CSA Member, Apex Credit Management Ltd, and is offering loans to customers. The fraudulent firm is operating under this CSA Member’s name, as well as the postal address.
The customer contacted Apex Credit Management Ltd with his concerns, and stated that the fraudulent firm was requesting a “registration” fee in order for the loan to be paid into the customer’s account.
If CSA Members or customers require advice or further information regarding fraud or attempted fraud they can visit the National Fraud & Cyber Crime Reporting Centre, ActionFraud, (www.actionfraud.police.uk).
